Happy New Year to IPE Zone Readers,

I received the following e-mail message regarding the launch of what looks like an impressive new journal on (duh) globalization and development. While most of the articles in its maiden issue are from economists, most are very easy to read--more Journal of Economic Perspectives than American Economic Review. Everything is non-gated for now; just enter some reader information and access the PDFs. Bookmark and enjoy!

The Initiative for Policy Dialogue (IPD) and Berkeley Electronic Press (bepress) are pleased to announce the launch of a new peer-reviewed journal, Journal of Globalization and Development.

Edited by the leading figures in development economics and globalization - José Antonio Ocampo (Columbia), Dani Rodrik (Harvard), Joseph Stiglitz (Columbia), and M. Shahe Emran (George Washington University) - Journal of Globalization and Development sets the agenda for the future of studies in these rapidly evolving fields. The journal brings together academic research and policy analysis on globalization, development, and in particular the complex interactions between them, to stimulate a creative dialogue between theory and practice, incorporating views from academics and practitioners in a variety of disciplines.
